Research Strategy

Think about logical search terms and their synonyms as you begin your search.

Seek out reference tools like encyclopedias and specialized dictionaries to:

  • gain and understanding of the subject matter
  • build a relevant vocabulary
  • gather background information to understand the issues

Find a variety of source types including books, journal articles, authoritative Internet sources, etc. in order to provide varying levels of subject treatment.

Focus on the topic:

  • Take notes to document your research path (terms used, resources searched).
  • Follow footnotes and investigate bibliographies
  • Evaluate the research value of sources consulted in context of your topic
Ask a librarian for help developing a research plan
